Some light TV for your Saturday

As most of you know, the Oakland school district, like others throughout California, faces some painful financial decisions. Some of its programs and services — and who knows what else — could shrivel up or disappear altogether.

Thirty million dollars is not a small amount of change, and that’s what district officials think they’ll have to cut from next year’s budget.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow, the board meets all day in its regular spot to hear various proposals. I won’t be there in person, but I’ll try to catch some of it on TV.

KDOL (Channel 27) is airing it live, for those of you rare Bay Area types who actually have television sets and cable. KDOL is not streaming the retreat online, but if you have AT&T U-verse, whatever that is, you can access it on Channel 99.

You can find the agenda here.
